Paul Krugman Reveals How the Super Rich Conceal Their Wealth and Perpetuate Staggering Inequality

magnius159:

"The Invisible Rich," which is a play on a famous essay in the New Yorker fifty years ago, “ Our Invisible Poor”, Krugman column makes a strong case that most Americans have no idea just how rarefied the existence of the tippy top of the elite .001 percent is.  And that’s just how the elite likes it.

Shows that give viewers the opportunity to ogle “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” and celebrity cribs don’t really get to the heart of the matter. Rich celebrities are not as representative of the multi-billionaire class as one might think. Here’s Krugman’s evidence and argument that vast swaths of America have an out-dated conception of how much the greediest corporate chieftains make:

…In the United States  the median respondent believed that chief executives make about 30 times as much as their employees, which was roughly true in the 1960s — but since then the gap has soared, so that today chief executives earn something like 300 times as much as ordinary workers.

Part of the reason America’s pay gap exploded is that Congress encouraged companies to lard up CEO pay packages. Performance bonuses and stock options are tax deductible, meaning that every taxpayer is subsidizing the CEO pay gap. CEOs routinely receive performance incentives even when they fail to hit the productivity targets that were supposed to trigger the bonuses, signalling a broken relationship between corporate executives, corporate compensation boards, and actual economic performance. Management consultants have spent decades recommending higher and higher pay packages at the top of company rosters, and economic elites have reaped the rewards of that advice.

Americans Have No Idea How Much Less They Make Than Their Companies’ CEOs

But people still be going on about the impoverished stealing and mooching. It’s like watching a kid fall for a magic trick every single time even though you told them how the trick is done.
